Today, I'm featuring the super serine Pure Innocence - Serenity! Isn't she chill? I have paired her with the fabulous NEW Blueprints 2! Whether you have limited time, or simply need a creative jumpstart; Blueprints is your answer. A design plan and building blocks in one revolutionary product.  Follow the provided sketches, or mix and match the elements provided to become your own architect.  Leave the heavy lifting to us.

I have made 4 cards with NEW Pure Innocence Serenity Stamp Set following all 4 of the Blueprints 2 sketches PDF. You can find the Blueprints 2 sketches PDF on the MFT Blog.

I cut 4 A2 cards from MFT Replenishments Kraft Heavyweight Card Stock for the base and used the pretty BasicGrey Hey Girl 6x6 paper pad for all 4 cards. For my first card, I matted with Electric Red and Blu Raspberry Heavyweight Card Stock. I coloured the NEW PI Serenity girl with my copics and cut her out and popped her up on framed oval.  I cut several butterflies with the Notched Tag Die-namics and the Butterflies Die-namics. I stamped a sentiment from the PI all Occasions Stamp set on whip Cream Heavyweight Card Stock cut with the tag from the Christmas Ornaments Die-namics.

Here is the inside...I cut the panel from Whip Cream Heavyweight Card Stock with the large rectangle die-namics from the NEW Blueprints 2 Die-namics and stamped the NEW PI Serenity girl with Electric reg Premium Dye Ink. I used the Sweet Stack Labels Die-namics for the sentiment panel and used two sentiments from the NEW PI Serenity Stamp set to create this sentiment. I added a little hemp cord and another cute butterfly.

Now for card # 2...I used the gorgeous NEW Factory Green Heavyweight Card stock and I love it paired with Orange Fizz Heavyweight Card Stock. This time I paper pieced the sweet little PI Serenity girl, coloured her with my Copics, cut her out and popped her up on the card. I LOVE the sweet little tag in the NEW Blueprints 2 Die-namics and I stamped the cute sentiment with the NEW Orange Fizz Premium Dye Ink. I also love the little tag "reinforcer" die...it is also a great little spot to put a gem or brad!

Here is the inside...I stamped a shadow image of the PI Serenity girl in the NEW Orange Fizz Premium Dye Ink. I created the sentiment with a portion of the sentiment from the PI Gymnast Stamp set and the NEW PI Serenity Stamp set.

This is card #3...I used Blu Raspberry and Hot Fudge Heavyweight Card Stock...I love this colour combo. I cut the oval frame from the NEW Blueprints 2 Die-namics from thin chipboard and covered it with Blu Raspberry Heavyweight Card Stock . I cut the floral pattern paper with the Oval STAX Die-namics.  PI Serenity girl is coloured with my Copics and cut out. I popped her up on the oval...her yoga mat!

Here is a close up shot of her...I gave her some freckles with my Sepia Copic Mulit-liner pen.

Here is the inside...I made a chipboard tag with the negative oval piece with the oval frame die-namics from the NEW Blueprints 2 Die-namics. I stamped this sentiment by combining two of the sentiments from the NEW PI Serenity Stamp set.

And this card # 4...I used the NEW Factory Green Heavyweight Cardstock and NEW Factory Green Premium Dye Ink. I paired it with Orange Fizz Heavyweight Card Stock.  I coloured the very relaxed PI Serenity with my Copics, paper pieced her yoga attire and added little hemp cord bows to her pigtails.

Your cards are very pretty. I giggle every time I see this little image. My kids are always mocking me with this same Jesture...fingers together, palms up as a hint I need to pull a few irons out of the fire. Usually going in a few directions. I should surprise them each with a card to show them that I am sorta paying attention. Thanks for sharing your talents with us.

Joann said...
